How Often to Get 1989 Toyota Camry Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Toyota Camry? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1989 Camry’s oil should be changed according to Toyota’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Camry may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Toyota Camry. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Toyota Camry Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1989 Toyota Camry motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Toyota has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1989 Camry. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Camry’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Camry by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

1989 Toyota Camry Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Toyota Camry engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Camry’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Toyota oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota Camry exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
